How do I transfer all photos and music from my old iphone 3gs to new iphone 4s? I have a new laptop because the old one broke and so do not have non camera roll photos or music stored anywhere apart from the iphone 3gs and cannot update io5 on the iphone 3gs without erasibng everything. i need help!!!

Syncing to a new iTunes library or computer will erase your phone. Only if you back up manually before syncing, you can restore your device from that backup again. A manual backup does not include the sync process.
Do this:
Disable autosync in iTunes, connect your phone to your new computer and right click on it in the device list and choose backup. iTunes will backup your device without syncing.
Transfer your purchases the same way, choosing "transfer purchases" this time.
When you connect your phone for the first time, all media content will be erased. But you can restore your settings and app data from your manual backup afterwards.
Don't forget to set up at least one contact and event on your new computer to be able to merge calendars and contacts when you sync the iPhone for the first time.
Music is one way only, from the computer to your device, unless you bought the songs in itunes and transferred your purchases.
There is 3rd party software out there, but not supported by Apple, see this thread: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2013615&tstart=0

  • How to copy non-camera roll photos from iphone

    Hi
    I have several hundred photos on iphone that I've lost on my laptop after hard drive failure. Apple store helped to copy camera roll photos to CD but can't help with the others. I REALLY want to get copies of these, even if they're not quite top resolution.
    Any suggestions about ways to copy photo folders off iphone? Battery problems mean I ned to do this quickly so iphone can be wiped for testing/software reinstallment.
    Many thanks
    Sue

    Sue,
    When you plug your phone into your Windows computer Windows should prompt you what application do you want to use to import the photos from your "digital camera" that you just plugged into your computer. It will display a list of compatible applications. Pick one, when it opens it should show the photos on the phone/camera and allow you to import them. Hope this helps!

  • How do I transfer non-Camera Roll photos from iPhone3G to PC?

    Years ago I copied thousands of sentimental family photos from a dying laptop to my then state of the art iPhone 3.
    They were in multiple seperate folders, and NOT saved to the Camera Roll.
    How can I transfer them back to my latest laptop as they obviously don't show in the iPhone explore when connected to a laptop etc.
    I am desperate to retrieve these photos in full resolution as they are so sentimental.
    The only option I know that works is by emailing 5 at a time .. but as there are nearly 6000 photos ... ugh!  And obviously the basic iPhone3G doesn't have Cloud functionality.
    There must be an easier way? Please help!
    Many thanks in advance.

    Look man sorry for late reply but I was stuck with some net probs
    By the way if u have 2 idevices then u can download the bluetooth-U app on both and it will automatically detect idevices via bluetooth and u can import the all 6000 photos and other many files from your albums or camera roll and tranfer them for free from one idevice to other
    its free no wifi and net required and will work like a horse
    try not for photos then for some other files
    it reads all extentions from pdf to .doc anfld many mire
    it can even play and view all files documents photos and pdfs and even music or videos
    by the way if u add your pics to this software via iTunes app tab then they will be available in full resolution just in case u want to do it !!!!!
    Happy to know ur prob solved but I m sorry for late reply if my router had worked correc then I would have urgently solved ur prob
    but do download man its amazing soft
    and do reply
    Cheers TGT

    This is one of the most basic of functions of the iPhone.  This is a good time for you to read the User Guide.  All the instructions on how to operate yor phone are included.  I suggest you read through it.

    I would like to know how I can transfer all my purchases to a new computer. The laptop which all the music is stored, is broken.

    You can also re-download most previous purchases (not just songs) from the iTunes Store from the Purchased screen.  So, you should be able to get the "one missing purchase" back too.  Sign in to iTunes using the Apple ID used to make the purchases.  Go to the iTunes Store.  (With the new iTunes 12, select the Music category first, then go to the iTunes Store.)  Click on Purchased (along right side under QUICK LINKS).  From the Purchased screen, you can find and download previous song purchases, at no cost.
    You can also re-download purchases from other iTunes categories, such as Movies and TV Shows.

    there are a number of scenarios to do it.
    The general idea was covered here:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2518
    Make sure you have a full backup of your iPhone before recyncing with the iMac as during this process all data will be wiped out from your iPhone.
    Going forward you may want to check icloud which makes life easier.

  • Hi i just buy a macbook how can i transfer all my musics and apps from my iphone to my new itune?

    hi i just buy a macbook how can i transfer all my musics and apps from my iphone to my new itune?

    1) authorize iTunes on the new machine for your iTunes store account(s)
    2) connect your device and right-click or control-click it in the iTunes Source list, then choose transfer purchases from the shortcut menu that appears.
    3) sync the device
    iTunes will wipe the iPhone but, since you transferred your purchases in the previous step, your content will be in your library and you can re-populate the iPhone with it.
    for everything else, check out this post by Zevoneer.
    also, there are PhoneView and iRip.

  • If I delete all my photos in my camera roll will it still be in my iCloud ??? And I made a photo stream for pics of me and my friends is t in my iCloud ? I want to delete all my pictures but will it be in my iCloud ?

    If I delete all my photos in my camera roll will it still be in my iCloud ??? And I made a photo stream for pics of me and my friends is t in my iCloud ? I want to delete all my pictures but will it be in my iCloud ?

    Don't rely on iCloud to back up your pictures.  It's designed to sync them to your devices, not back them up.  Photo stream photos only remain in iCloud for 30 days, allowing your devices enough time to download them.  But if you ever lose your device, or have to replace it, any photos older than 30 days will no longer be in iCloud to download.
    To keep your photos, import them to your computer using your usb cable while they are still in your camera roll, as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083.  After importing them, you will be given an option to delete them from your device.

  • How do I find camera roll photos after backing up my iPad in iTunes before migrating to iOS8 then back to iOS7?

    I recently, mistakenly, migrated my iPad to iOS8. In less than a day I concluded iOS8 was not for me, I migrated back to IOS 7.  I backed up the iPad in iOS8 using iTunes before migrating back and now find that my camera roll has gone.  I realise that iOS8 put the photos somewhere else (witness the posts here and in other Mac forums complaining that their camera rolls are 'gone') but shouldn't they have been backed up in iTunes? 
    I was able to retrieve all the apps from the backup but there was no camera roll.  Where in the iOS8 backup should they be now?  I'm afraid that I haven't figured out a connection from posts describing where the camera roll pictures went in iOS8 to be able to work backwards and restore them.
    Can anyone please describe how I might be able to retrieve the Camera Roll?

    You cannot.
    You should be importing them regularly as you would with any digital camera.
    Did you not import them before restoring?

  • Photo Albums?   I have Camera Roll, Photo Library, and Picture.... why?

    I have 3 categories under my Photo albums on my iphone. Camera Roll, Photo Library, and Picture. Now looking at these three options shows 125 pictures in the Camera roll, 84 Pictures in the Photo Library, and 81 Pictures in the Picture option.... Now the problem I have is they are all the same pictures, just seems they are all in the Roll and some in the others. What I need to know is why? why purpose does this have, and how do I delete them from one, or will it delete them from all? would hate to have to think I have to delete them each 3 times... Not sure why it is like this but hoping the reason is simple and understandable. do different applications use pics from different categories? I am confused.

    You certainly CAN create as many albums as you want. You do this by first creating the albums on your desktop, then syncing those albums to the iPhone. You can use Adobe Albums, but you don't need it.
    If not you can actually use the My Pictures folder, but I don't recommend that. Instead, create a new folder in My Documents. I call mine "iPod Pictures" (because I sync them to my iPod also). In "iPod Pictures" create sub-folders; name each one with the name of an album. Now copy the pictures you want on the iPhone into the appropriate "album" sub-folder. I shrink them to 640x480 in the process to save memory on the iPhone, but this is optional. It's easiest to do this with a photo editor like Microsoft Photo or the one I prefer, Google Picasa. It is free at picasa.google.com.
    Finally, put the iPhone in the dock and wait for it to appear in iTunes. Click on the iPhone in the left panel, then on the Photos tab. At the top there is a box labeled "Sync Photos From:" Click on the box and select the "iPod Pictures" folder. Then choose "All Photos" or "Selected Folders" as you prefer and sync. Each sub-folder will become an album on the iPhone.
    Any time you add or remove a folder or a photo in a folder the next time you sync the iPhone will be updated with the change.

  • I created a photo album on my iPhone 4s - edited photos etc. but I cannot figure out how to transfer it to my pc (using Windows 8).  The only folder in the iphone drive is the one which has the Camera roll photos :( Help please - I really need the photos!

    The camera roll is not part of the sync process at all.
    You should be importing these photos to your computer regularly as you would with any digital camera.  Youc an organize them on your computer and sync the to the iphone if you wish.
    The photos sync from the computer to the iphone is one way.
    The iphone mirrors the selected content of the computer to which it is synced.

  • All of my camera roll photos don't copy onto photo stream

    Hey Guys,
    I recently activated photo stream on my 4S. I already had over 100 photos on it but for some reason only some of the photos copied. I now have 282 photos but only 108 are on photostream. I have tried turning it off and on many times but all the photos never copy. I cannot see why some photos have copied and others have not.
    Does anyone know how I can fix this?
    Many thanks,
    Suraj

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    PhotoStream only syncs photos taken after you activated the service, it doesn't just sync everything in your camera roll.
